DETROIT (AP) — Matthew Stafford’s career with the Detroit Lions just got longer.

Stafford and the Lions have agreed to terms on a $53 million, three-year extension to keep him under contract through 2017, according to a person familiar with the deal. Stafford will make $41.5 million in guarantees as part of a new contract.

Detroit drafted Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009 and signed him to a six-year contract worth as much as $78 million with $41.7 million in guarantees. After two injury-shortened seasons, he helped the franchise reach the playoffs two years ago for the first time in more than a decade.Michigan.”
